Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) Causes:
There are a lot of reasons why people get urinary tract infections, and it is often dependent on a person’s gender or on their activities. Usually and more often than not, a urinary tract infection is caused by a person not knowing how to wash himself or herself hygienically. Since most urinary tract infections are caused by the E. Coli bacteria and this bacteria is found around and in a person’s bowel or colon, one of the main reasons why a person gets UTI is when this bacteria enters the urinary tract.
- Women get urinary tract infection by not knowing how to properly wipe their private parts. Usually, when E. Coli bacteria enters a woman’s urinary tract, it is because of the fact that she wipes her private parts back to front, not the proper front-to-back way. This allows any E. Coli bacteria from the anal area to enter the urinary tract by way of the woman’s urethra.
- Another possible cause of more serious urinary tract infections that affect the bladder and the kidney is due to a person not taking care of the problem at its onset.
This may progress to more serious problems like kidney infections.
- Sexual intercourse with a person who has this problem or not washing after sexual intercourse can also cause a person to have UTI.
